Beginning Monday, April 24, 2023, the City of Rock Island’s contractor will begin work on the 2023 Asphalt Preservation Program. Work on this contract is expected to conclude within seven business days. There are five (5) locations on this year’s program; 24th Street from 18th Avenue to 37th Avenue; Sunset Lane; 14th Street from 35th Avenue to 42nd Avenue; 40th Avenue and Watch Hill Road from 14th Street to 17th Street; and Hillcrest Court.
No on-street parking will be allowed while the contractor is sealing the pavement. Sand is applied after treatment to allow vehicular traffic while the product cures. After curing, the sand will be swept off.
Access to residential and commercial properties will be maintained as much as possible, however, there will be periods when this is not possible when the contractor is working directly in front of the drive and the filler material dries. This work usually takes only one day.
Travel delays can be expected at or near the work zone. Please follow all posted construction signs and flaggers for directions as needed in the work zone. In addition, watch for trucks entering and leaving the construction zone.
The City of Rock Island is sorry for any inconvenience due to this road work and appreciates the patience and consideration of the traveling public.
